The above LO photo's are from my younger sister Cheere, who lives is Australia. She married Des September 14th.
The design paper is from MY MINDS EYE-  "lost and found 2" collection ....
Lovely LF2084
Dusty Attic sketch challenge for January was used as a spring board for this LO.

I have used Dusty Attic chips for this dress form..always a winner.
Mini Dress Forms DA0516
I used Glimmer mist-frozen lake and fall breeze to color the chip. The stamps from the MME- "lost and found 2" are used, using gold embossing powder. Behind the dress form is first stamped with black ink. Clear embossing powder and then, gold embossing powder. You can see I have used the Tim Holtz pine cone to make the flower. I used kraft card stock, inked with distress ink and glimmer mist. Using the mist after the flower was made, made the distress ink run....I like the effect.

Close ups of Cheere and Des - Cheere and Mum.

Cheere and Uncle Max, mums younger brother. Max gave Cheere away.

Melissa Frances key holes are used here. I broke it in half, then used the other half on the other side of the page.The clock handles are made with a Sizzix die.This came as a set of 4 dies in the packet. cut six times. Then stacked and have a chip.

Once again I stamped first with black ink,  clear then gold embossing powder.

The gold toned kraft card stock swirls are made with the Cherry Lynn swirl dies

You can see here I have altered the Dusty Attic chip.
Vine Flourish DA0486.  

Here you can see all the different glimmer colors.
The vines are colored with Glimmer Chalk-Mint Chocolate chip. The leaves are worked with Glimmer mist-Frozen Lake and Fall Breeze. I played with the colors and added puffy paint to give it the texture. Added the darker color on the tips to give depth.

At the bottom of the page...subtitle, I added a flower and two more clock handles. If you look very closely you might see that I have embossed the sewing machine with clear embossing powder.
I hope you have enjoyed this post.
